Bills sign another speedy wide receiver



Pittsford, NY (WGR 550)  -- The three things that humans can count on in this world are death, taxes and the 2013 Buffalo Bills employing lightning-quick wide receivers. After their sixth practice of training camp on Saturday, the franchise announced they've added some more speed to the already fast wide receiver group.

The Bills signed rookie wideout Terrell Sinkfield to an undisclosed contract. Sinkfield was an undrafted free agent that initially signed with Miami after the draft. He was released by the Dolphins in May, and then picked up  in June by the Green Bay Packers.

Sinkfield has been out of a job since the Packers released him just prior to training camp on July 19. The wide receiver hails from Northern Iowa, and ran a blazing 40-yard dash time of 4.19 seconds to at least one stopwatch at the University of Minnesota pro day.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press however, Scott Studwell (the Vikings' director of college scouting) said he didn't time Sinkfield with a sub 4.3 40-yard dash during any of his attempts.

In his time at Northern Iowa, the 6-foot, 200-pond wideout had 76 receptions for 1,097 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Regardless of the actual time, the speedy wide receiver joins an already quick group that features Marquise Goodwin, T.J. Graham, Robert Woods and Chris Hogan. Sinkfield will wear no. 86 with the Bills.

Buffalo now has 88 players on their active roster.
